PHOENIX - PJ's in the Park 2018
What better way to spend a Spring Sunday than coming for a run with us in your pyjamas?
We've been granted permission once again to host one of our small running events in the beautiful grounds of Nonsuch Park, near Sutton in Surrey. So we're inviting you to join us for a 'Pyjamathon in the Park'. Nonsuch boasts a stunning setting and great facilities, including an onsite cafe. We will, of course, be setting up our own aid station, aka 'the Tuck Shop', which as usual will be well stocked with all the things we deem as good for runners; water, sweets, crisps, chocolate freddos, to name but a few of the goodies. ...
So you don't even need to get dressed to come and join us for the Pyjamathon in the Park and have some fun on what we hope will be a sunny spring day - remember lycra is out, night-gowns and jim-jams are in!! Slippers and your morning newspaper are optional.
How does our format work? Well, you choose - from 5km to ultra, you can complete as many, or as few laps as you like of a looped course around the grounds of the park. We welcome all abilities of runner - complete one lap and you're both a finisher and a winner in our eyes, or keep going and see how far you can get in the full 6 hour time limit and everyone gets the fabulous bespoke finishers' medal. Not sure? Well the beauty of this format is that you don't even need to decide in advance - simply come and run a lap and see how you feel on the day and keep on going if it feels right.
Places will be strictly limited so don't leave it too late to enter.
This event is fully sanctioned by the 100 Marathon Club and for competitors completing 8 laps or more (26.2 miles+) this will count towards your numbers.
Tarmac paths, woodland paths and off road trail. The overall course has some elevation gain in the first half and loss in the second half making this a varied route with a few undulations.
Registration opens from 9.30am
The postcode for your sat nav for parking in the park is SM8 3AJ.
